Add in both Halo's gameplay style from 2-3 and also add in gameplay style of 4-5. Well you might see it as just that but think about other games that have made very slight changes to their series as time went on. CoD has stayed the same for years and changed little bit little and still sold millions, Counter Strike has kept its formula simple and yet it hold more players than Halo 5. Simple is key in my opinion and trying to change/innovate too much is bound to have backlash and negativity towards it.FatSKINNY MAN wrote:How do you mean both sides? As in have two different sets of gameplay mechanics.Then why not add in both sides? That why we can see which might be more popular. Im not saying I want a Halo 3.5, I just want a Halo that everyone can enjoy and say to someone else, hey come get this awesome game. Halo needs to innovate but not within its gameplay mechanics, that didnt need changing but 343 decided to take up on Reach instead of seeing the most profitable Halo (Halo 3) and innovate off that.FatSKINNY MAN wrote:I don't think its an issue of fear, its just a good guess.How do you know if the older style wouldnt last? You dont know and never will. We all will never know because 343i are too afraid to take that chance. Not my fault they left out a lot of community features, things that could have been innovated on, a game that brought people together again like Halo did in the past. Halo is nothing more than a shadow of its former self, why you ask, because 343 screwed it up.Long standing franchises have to change smart guy. We can't keep playing the same slow gameplay from 15 years ago.Never said i hated the game, just its direction get your facts straight.Lol. You're delusional.Funny that you clearly make that assumption, thinking I want Halo 3.5. No clearly what I WANT is Halo to continue and it being the game that can bring people back together. Also for me It is the mostly played game I have as for right now. I have other games sure but i play it among all others.Stop living in the past. Halo isn't the one game to play now a days nor isn't the only triple A title out there.Well they need to seriously step up their game.UEG ShadowAngel wrote:Worst selling doesn't always mean bad.

There are tons of people who play the game. Stop coming up with reasons to blindly hate it.
Get over it. Adapt or go play something else and leave the forums. Your toxic attitude is what kills this community.
If this Halo was like the older Halos, I wouldn't be playing it and neither would the majority, plain and simple. And I've been playing Halo since the first day of C.E.
I know that I don't want to play $60 for a game that I've already played, and many others wouldn't either.
As much as we don't know that the old style wouldn't last, we also don't know that it would, but history shows that it probably wouldn't last.
I think gameplay mechanics is one of the first things that needs to be innovative, if the mechanics are the same its still just like an old game, but on a new map. That's how I see it.
I find the older Halo's better IMO again but I find Halo 5 lacking in so many ways that it didnt need all that change to stay relevant.
